Cable car crash lands in Brighton

The GMB union will have its own reasons for inviting discredited Con Dem business secretary Vince Cable MP to its annual conference in Brighton today.

However it is difficult to understand why any union would provide a public platform to a Senior Minister - who in the past year has voted for £81 billion public spending cuts - to pontificate on Con Dem plans to tighten up anti union laws if public service unions have the temerity to resist Government attacks on job and pensions? http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/jun/05/vince-cable-union-strike-warning
